There are thousands and thousands of edublogs on cyberspace, but very few contain good contents that not only update you on latest trends and happenings but also inspire you to think beyond the boundaries of the e-learning realm. Here, I list out 5 best edubloggers who have in one way or another inspired and educated me on various topics related to learning, e-learning and educational technology
Tom Kuhlmann’s e-learning blog has nearly 10,000 subscribers, making it the most read blog in the elearning industry. Initially as a customer of articulate products who often offers creative tips on how to use them, now he offers a lot of his views on e-learning via his blog.
If you’re on the lookout for the latest trends and news on e-learning technology, then you must subscribe to this blog. Dr. Tony Karrer is CEO/CTO of TechEmpower, a software, web and eLearning development firm based in Los Angeles, and is considered one of the top technologists in e-Learning. This blog does not merely highlights the current happenings in the field of e-learning but also provide fresh discussions on the implementation of e-learning and its technology.
The owner of this blog is Michele Martin. To me, she’s one of the best female edubloggers around, oops, i’m not trying to be gender bias, but hey, who says women can’t blog? In her about page, Michele stated that her blog “is dedicated to helping individuals and organizations use best practices and social media tools to construct life-long learning and career development systems”. Well, I enjoy reading her Best of Bamboo’s posts and they never fail to provoke my thinking and inspire my creativity.
Zaidlearn belongs to Zaid Ali Alsagoff and his blog contains a lot of information on various e-learning issues. This is perhaps one of the best blogs that provide reviews and tips on e-learning tools. Zaid is currently in Malaysia in his constant pursuit on e-learning research.

In her blog summary, Susan stated that her blog “focuses on distance training and education, from instructional design to e-learning and mobile solutions, and pays attention to psychological, social, and cultural factors.”
